Rumours of illness, poisoning, and madness - a ship disappears without a trace! Read this interactive science story and use deductive reasoning skills to solve a mystery. This engaging resource gives science stars a chance to practice problem solving. Since the possible causes of death in the story are all diseases, this would be ideal as an enrichment activity for your biology course, particularly when studying infectious disease, bacteria, or viruses.
Students perform two experiments to show the properties of enzymes. They use pectinase to produce apple juice from applesauce to show enzyme action and then taste the difference between raw and boiled papaya seeds as evidence of enzyme deactivation.
Written for an introductory organic and biochemistry course, this exam will challenge your class. They label functional groups and stereocenters on drawings of molecules, draw structures given the name, complete drawings of chemical reactions, and answer questions about the characteristics of organic compounds. There are 13 problems in all, and a periodic table is provided for reference.
Students test for organic molecules to determine if a solution contains once living molecules. In this characteristics of life lesson, students test common liquids for the presence of organic molecules, including starch, protein, and glucose. Based on the results of the test, students determine if the liquid contains molecules that were once in living things.
A comprehensive practice exam, this resource covers many areas of chemistry. The test includes 71 multiple choice questions on topics such as problem solving, chemical equations, chemical formulas, thermodynamics, acids and bases, and organic chemistry. Take a look to see what else this practice exam includes! While this titled as a practice exam, it could be used as an actual exam. Answers are provided.
A set of review questions for nine chapters of 10th grade chemistry. The problems are quite involved. You could use this sheet to review as a class, or for independent or group study.
Review the 5 branches of chemistry and related terms with this worksheet. The focus of these activities is on terms and definitions. Learners answer questions about the study of chemistry, reasons to study chemistry, and pure and applied chemistry. Use this as a check or understanding or homework assignment.
Tenth graders engage in a lesson looking for the ideal conditions for microbial growth. The lesson is to be given once they have background knowledge about microbes. Students set up a lab in order to grow cultures over a period of two weeks. They make daily observations and record what is happening.
In this biochemistry vocabulary worksheet, students define, review and discuss thirteen key terms dealing with nutrients and then locate and circle each term in a word search puzzle.
Although biochemistry of the human body is a vital topic, it doesn't have a chapter dedicated to it in many biology textbooks. If that's the case with your text, you can use this resource as a guide for designing your own lecture and as a note-taking handout for the class. Improve your biology learners' foundational understanding for the rest of the course by covering this topic at the beginning of the year.
Students investigate wild-type and several mutant varieties of Drosophila melanogaster, which are characterized and distinguished according to pteridine pigments. They discoverthat paper chromatography of the wild-type Drosophila results in the separation of seven pteridines.
Students determine the impact of permafrost to the surrounding ecology. In this thermal erosion lesson plan, students examine the tributaries, communities and permafrost regions of the Yukon River. They evaluate the impact to the salmon survival rate.
Concepts learned in the study of mitosisand biochemistry help when making life or death decisions. Compile a notebook or portfolio of work related to the project can make the research more organized and relevant.
Students compare different household items and distinguish their chemical properties. They record their findings in a chart and compare their results to their predictions.
Students formulate a hypothesis regarding the validity of the current status of the Arizona Hedgehog cactus as a distinct variety of cactus. They design a procedure to isolate DNA from the tissue of plants, given a list of chemicals and equipment, and prior knowledge of the structure and biochemistry of plant cells.
Twelfth graders identify and discuss enzymes using a series of key words (substrate, enzyme-substrate complex, lock and key, catalyst). Students identify key science concepts, such as cause and effect and predictability, utilizing the processes of science and interpreting data. Students apply simple mathematical concepts when graphing and develop critical and creative thinking skills.
Students explore biotechnology through various activities. In this biology lesson, students analyze its pros and cons. They study and read informative articles about biotechnology.
Students identify and interpret the concept of an ecosystem and the potential impact humans have on ecosystems. They also proficient in organized and methodical Internet searches. Finally, students become proficient with public speaking and formal presentations.
Definitely geared toward college level biology, this activity is a survey of metabolism and biosynthesis. All questions require learners to write out short explanations, and a few include the analysis of graphs. The subtopics of the assignment are metabolism, thermodynamics, kinetics, ATP, and glycolysis. Use this as a biochemistry unit review.
Three subtopics are covered by this biochemistry assignment. Biology masters answer questions about photosynthesis and aerobic respiration. This is a well-designed worksheet, complete with complex and colorful diagrams for college learners to interpret. Administer it to your class as a unit review.
